Braves Still Sinking to New Lows With Offense

The Atlanta Braves offense couldn't have started the series opener against the Baltimore Orioles much better. Michael Harris II opened the game with a triple.

But instead of the extra-base hit breaking the Braves out of their offensive slump, it symbolized the problem in a microcosm.

Harris' triple not only didn't lead to a "crooked" number in the first inning, the Braves didn't score at all. Ozzie Albies grounded out to shortstop, Austin Riley struck out and Matt Olson popped out in foul territory, stranding Harris 90 feet from home.

It was the beginning of a night that saw the Braves go 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position during the 4-0 loss.
